LibriVox recording of The Surprising Adventures of the Magical Monarch of Mo and His People, by L. Frank Baum.

The Magical Monarch of Mo is a set of stories about the titular king, his queen, and his royal children. The stories are uproariously funny, dealing with topics as absurd as a man losing his temper who then tries to find it, an evil midget who steals a princess's big toe, and an entire city filled with highly civilized monkeys! Join the Monarch and all his friends for a rollicking adventure, filled with fun for the whole family! (Summary by Miriam Esther Goldman)

Subject: Good stories, more for children. Mixed bag of readers.
I hate to find fault with librivox readers. After all, they volunteer their time and talents to create audiobooks for me to listen to for free. This time, though, I must say that one or two or three of these folks should have sat this project out. Others read quite well. The book itself is very much a children's book for children, not necessarily for both children and adults. Compare it to The Wizard Of Oz and you'll see what I mean. Still, taken on its own merits, it's a fun and funny book, just not a masterpiece.

Subject: Great stories
I could not understand the first few stories as the reader had a thick accent, which would have been ok except that she read very fast. Otherwise it was great.

Subject: Uneven
The first four chapters are read at high speed in a monotonous monotone. Reader's heavy German accent is often difficult to understand. The succeeding readers are fine.
